We do not use the data to identify you personally. In addition, we use cookies and tracking services on the website. You can find more detailed explanations on this under sections 7 and 8 of this data protection notice.

2.2 Subscribing to our newsletter | invitations for events

If you have consented to receive our newsletter, invitations to events and other information relevant to you (Art. 6 Sec. 1 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR), we will use your name and e-mail address to send you this information electronically. You can revoke your consent and unsubscribe at any time with effect for the future. To do so, use either the link at the end of each newsletter or alternatively the above- mentioned e-mail address. This means that we will not process the data based on this consent in the future and delete the data, provided that there is no other legal basis and no legal obligation to retain data.

Client profile (Title, first name, surname, e-mail address, address, phone number and fax number (where applicable)).
Contract data
Information, which is necessary for enforcement and defence of the rights under client contract

The data is processed in order to be able to identify you as a client, to provide you with appropriate legal advice and representation, for correspondence with you, for invoicing and for the settlement or assertion of any claims.
The personal data collected by us for the client contract will be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention obligation for lawyers (6 years after the end of the calendar year in which the client contract was terminated) and then deleted, unless we are obliged to store the data for a longer period of time pursuant to Article 6 Sec. 1 Para.1 lit. c GDPR, due to retention and documentation obligations under tax and commercial law or if you have consented to a storage beyond this pursuant to Article 6 Sec. 1 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

3. Transfer of personal data

We will only transfer your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given us your consent to do so pursuant to Art. 6 Sec. 1 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR,
  • the disclosure is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 Sec. 1 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume, that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data.
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation to disclose your data in accordance with Art. 6 Sec. 1 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR, as well as if
  • this is legally permissible and required in accordance with Art. 6 Sec. 1 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the performance of the contractual relationship with you.

Insofar as this is necessary for processing the client contract with you in accordance with Art. 6 Sec. 1 Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR, your personal data will be transferred to third parties. This includes in particular the disclosure to opposing parties and their representatives (in particular their legal counsel) as well as courts and other public authorities for the purpose of correspondence and the enforcement and defence of your rights.

The attorney-client privilege remains unaffected. Insofar as data is subject to legal professional privilege, it will only be passed on to third parties in agreement with you.

If we process personal data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this is done in the context of using third-party services or disclosing or transferring data to third parties, this is only done if it is necessary for the fulfilment of our (pre-) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, due to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. If there are no statutory grounds which permit doing so, we only allow data to be processed in a third country if the prerequisites of Art. 44 et seqq. GDPR are met.
